Celina Jaitly opens up about her tragic loss of losing twin ‘baby boy’
As a result of a heart condition, Celina Jaitly lost a twin baby boy named Shamsher.
On July 19, Celina tweeted a picture of her baby from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) as well as a picture of her family, along with a lengthy caption. Additionally, she discussed the challenges she faced after losing her son.
“It took me five years to come to terms with this episode of our lives, but I’ve finally summoned the courage to talk about it, in hopes of helping other parents cope with the trauma of preterm birth and loss.”
Peter and I want such parents to know that they can get through this. Having witnessed the miracle of a preemie baby’s survival, we can vouch for their strength. #Preemies demonstrate the power of faith and prayer and the strength of the human spirit. It is important to remember that most premature babies survive and live normal, healthy lives.”
During pregnancy, the Golmaal Returns actress explained what preterm means.
The outcome of our second spontaneous twin pregnancy was bittersweet due to Baby Shamsher’s death due to a heart condition.”
(I went into labour at 32 weeks due to the sudden passing of my father.) We were very sad at the time, but in this photograph (1) we were able to smile after many million tears as we sealed a happy memory for our blessing baby @arthurjhaag, who immediately went to the NICU in an incubator for 3 months after his arrival.”
“The NICU was a strange and challenging environment. From our experience, accepting that there will be good and bad days will make you feel less shocked and worried when challenging days occur.”
“While it is not an option for everyone, Peter and I moved into the same hospital in Dubai for the few months of #nicu as the loss of Shamsher left us immensely anxious about Arthur, and feelings of frustration, intense sadness, nervousness, disappointment, guilt, anger, and love overwhelmed us as well.”
As she concluded her post, she offered advice to all parents in similar situations, saying: “Know that you are not alone.”
